Should we focus on the p-value instead of the alpha level?


  1. Answer:

    Yes, we must focus on p-value along with the alpha level


    Alpha and P values are provides two different set of information. While on one hand alpha values sets an extreme value set before rejecting the hypothesis, P value determines the extremeness of the values in the data set.  Thus, if p values is lesser than or equal to alpha value, the null hypothesis is rejected,  If p value is greater than alpha value, then the null hypothesis is not rejected.
